This week Patti gave use the prompt From Large to Small for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.
This week Tina gives us the prompt Blue and Green for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.
Having been down to the local bay at dawn a few hours before Tina posted the prompt I decided to see what else I could come up with over the Victoria Day long weekend in Canada.
Streaking Clouds in the Blue Hour. A live composite exposure of clouds moving across Colpoy’s Bay at dawn on Saturday morning.
New Green Growth. Pine needles spotted on a walk around the neighborhood on Sunday afternoon.
Green with Cream Edges. Variegated Hosta leaves photographed on a walk around the neighborhood on Sunday evening.
Blue with an Orange Band. Colpoy’s Bay at dawn on Monday morning.
This week Ann-Christine gave us the prompt Spots and Dots for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.
I had a couple of ideas for the prompt before going for a walk on Sunday afternoon. The actual purpose of the walk was to continue my testing of the TTArtisan 35mm lens. But lens testing was quickly forgotten when I started looking for spots of colour.
Spots of Yellow. Having finally had a couple of days of spring like weather the Dandelions have emerged in force. It was the yellow flowers in the grass that gave me the idea for this post.
Spots of Green. Next I found these green leaves growing through the soil. I think they’re the leaves of Lily-of-the-valley.
Spots of Blue. Technically Periwinkle blue is a pastel purple. These Periwinkle flowers were the next spots of colour I spotted.
Spots of White. The final spots of colour I spotted were these White Trilliums. The provincial flower of Ontario and regarded as a sign of spring.
This week Patti has given us the prompt Focusing on the Details for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.
As Ontario is currently under the third Covid-19 lockdown I decided to look back at some of the details I photographed on my walks around the neighborhood while under the various lockdowns.
This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Getting to Know You prompt.
Having initially considered various locations and nature subjects I thought about some of the ICM shots I had taken over the weekend.
I spent part of last weekend experimenting with various types of intentional camera movement using various lenses from an ultra wide angle lens to a macro lens.
The post is also a continuation of a the Lens-Artists prompt You Pick It earlier in the month.
For this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge Tina gives us the prompt Taking Flight.
An Osprey taking flight from the surface of Lake Huron, Ontario, Canada having just dived into the lake to catch a White Sucker.
Snow Geese taking flight from a section of the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area, Saskatchewan, Canada during autumn migration.
A Black-capped Chickadee taking flight on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada in winter.
A winter gull roost taking flight as the birds move to a different section of Hurleston Reservoir near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.
This is my contribution to Amy’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Colourful April prompt.
I decided to look back at some of colourful April photos from my archives. One for each decade since the 1980s with as wide a variety of images as possible.
1980s. The first weekend of April 1982. I am at the Le Mans race circuit in France documenting Team Bike in their first 24 hour endurance races. A pit stop at dawn on Sunday morning.
1990s. A male Orange Tip Butterfly feeding on Bluebells in a cottage garden. Photographed at Faddiley near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.
2000s. A male American Robin on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada. Recently arrived in Ontario on spring migration and giving me an attitude.
2010s. Late April 2018 and the local bay is still frozen and partially snow covered. Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada at sunrise.
2020s. Moss and lichen on a limestone boulder on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada. Taken on a walk around the neighborhood last Saturday afternoon.
